I’m often also there on other days and at other times, so if the door is ajar or open please come in. (Also, I have dark chocolate.)

If you can’t make it then and wish to make an appointment to see me, please email me so that we can figure out a mutually-convenient time.

I’m sharing some general useful resources below: openly-accessible freely-available information from the University. I use these resources a lot in the advising side of my work, you might also find them helpful, and they could also help you to help someone else. There are many people here at UBC who can help; even if it is « just » talking to someone with whom you feel comfortable and whom you trust, who will listen to you, that alone is already a vital service.

The same goes for any need to talk and to find support, whether something has happened to you or to someone you know, and also if nothing has happened but you worry that it might. Even if sometimes this seems like an overwhelmingly large university, and impersonal through its size and complexity: UBC is a compassionate caring community, made up of individual human beings.

ACADEMIC ADVISING

Through talking with them about academic matters during your time here, you may have already formed relationships with individuals with whom you would consider talking about other matters.

Academic advising at the departmental level may be another set of people to talk to, and again as with advising at the Faculty or School level, this is not just about a narrow sense of immediately academic matters: for example, here are the Academic Advisers in French, Hispanic & Italian Studies; students regularly talk to us about many things, all of which (and pastoral care) form part of any individual’s whole well-being.
